I received the ticket for this from the Bridgeclimb which I had done a few days before. You do have to climb about 250 steps but it is well worth it when you get to the top for the panoramic view over Sydney. You get...More

Good safety talk and equipment so you can never fall off the bridge. Very windy on our day so not all photos were good. Very expensive if you want to book for the whole family. The experience was great but thought the price was too...More

A great inclusion in a day out in Sydney. Just a short walk through the historic rocks area. The Pylon look out does include a lot of steps but they are internal , wide staircases and have supportive handrails. The experience also includes a museum...More

Maybe not a hidden secret to all but we have lived in Sydney for years and thought the only way to "climb" the harbour bridge was to pay $$$$. This is a must do, great value at $10 child / student $15 an adult. We...More

At $15, why wouldn’t you. It’s only a couple of hundred steps to the top and you get similar views as the Bridge climb for $300-$400+. On top of the pylon you can at least use your own camera or phone, stay as long as...More

Good museum with information about the Harbour Bridge but please note it is a walk up 200 steps each way.

We stopped here to view the Sydney Opera House and harbour. It is a perfect area to take pictures with the opera house in the background. This area is just beautiful! On the other side is a view of the ships in harbour.

On a trip across the Bridge , took time out to climb the Pylon and learn about the building of the Bridge itself. Very informative and a great place to view the Harbour and surrounding city scape

The 200 steps are not high steps and there are 3 levels, so she won't have to walk all of them at once. There is no lift, unfortunately. Plenty of seating once outside. You need to factor in also the steps needed to get to... More

No need to buy tickets in advance, it’s usually not that busy. If you’re planning on doing the Bridgeclimb aswell, they’ll give you complimentary pylon entrance tickets. If I remember correctly the fee is about 15$ each... More
